I've never heard of this one but it stars Gene Hackman and Liv Ullmann.

I graduated from high school in 1973, just 11 years after this movie was supposed to take place. I remember watching it (I was a freshman in college) and it looked like it was 50 years before my time, not 11. What a turbulent decade we had in the 60s!

I'm impressed, Meryl! Tati is one of the true greats, though hardly a household name, and Parade, his last film, is one of his most obscure works. In fact, this is the first time I've ever seen a poster for it. Thanks!  :D

Re: "S" is The Sugarland Express

This movie was anathema to my mom's side of the family, who were long-time residents of the real Sugar Land, Texas, and who took umbrage at the fact that hardly any (or any at all) footage was shot in the vicinity of the actual town. From reports, the movie makes Sugar Land seem like a border town--it's actually much closer to Louisiana than it is to Mexico.

I remember being driven as a child from Rosenberg to Sugar Land, and seeing a movie crew working out in a field beside the road. I've sometime fancied that I might have seen a scene from this movie being filmed then. I should check it out sometime (specially since no close family members now reside in Sugar Land).

OMG! The famous love scene between the two leads has remained imprinted in my brain since I first saw it in 1973!
